The video also reveals that just like Samsung Galaxy phones, the Oppo phone could also come with an S-pen as a hidden stylus. According to Oppo’s tweet, “Sliding one fold up exposes 40mm of the screen with simple features that don’t require a full screen. These are ideal for applications like call history, notifications, and music player interfaces.” After the second fold, an 80mm screen will be displayed, which is ideal for clicking images and playing games.
